It is wonderful to have these songs made available again. I first encountered them in Berlin in 1997 when a friend gave me a cassette tape of them. I have absolutely no idea who the performers are or when these songs were recorded, but would love to find out. The album's title is somewhat misleading: some of the songs are admittedly sung partly in French and partly in Arabic; but the lead soloist sings in English, delivering the absurdly camp lyrics to an accompaniment that is probably best described as Arabic-inflected cha-cha-cha or lounge. The only evidence of a "choir" are some backing singers, mostly singing in Arabic. If you are looking for authentic North African (or indeed Franco-Arabic) music then you should look elsewhere. In the meantime, enjoy these deliriously silly but hugely entertaining songs.
